2002 Playoffs

Chris Drury scored his 3rd career playoff overtime goal as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 to tie the Western Conference finals one game apiece.

"Chris Drury is one of the best money players we can have on our team," Colorado coach Bob Hartley said.

Peter Forsberg had a goal and three assists for the Avalanche, and Patrick Roy made 30 saves.

Boyd Devereaux, Kirk Maltby and Nicklas Lidstrom scored for the Red Wings, whose stars such as Brendan Shanahan and Sergei Fedorov have struggled to make an impact in the series.

"Our big guys have got to get going," Detroit coach Scotty Bowman said. "It's a tight series and you know, there is not much room out there."

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Denver.

"We played a bad game overall," said Dominik Hasek, who made 22 saves for the Red Wings. "We made a lot of mistakes. We didn't play well enough to win."
